Portland Beach is a rocky beach and district of Portland Island, Liberty City, the only one of its kind in the city, as much of the city's coastlines are taken up by seawalls.

Character

Located at the the eastern coast of the Portland Island next to Saint Mark's and Portland Harbor, the beach is a relatively lifeless district with close to no activity (as pedestrians never spawn in the district) or structures, featuring a vast sandy coastline overlooked by a massive cliff that supports the eastern end of Saint Mark's, as well as an arched rock formation that serves as a distinctive feature of the district; Salvatore Leone's Gentlemen's Club and home is located at the top of the arch.

While the cliff face fronting the beach is usually too steep for any road vehicle to drive up, much of its steep inclines must be traversed during "Patriot Playground", unlocking the full potential of the Patriot's off-road and hill climbing abilities.

Portland Rock, a rocky island that serves as the base of Liberty City's only lighthouse, is part of Portland Beach.

Stationary vehicles

In Grand Theft Auto III, a Bobcat is spawned in the middle of the beach's length whilst a BF Injection is located in roughly the same area in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
